Jon Corzine, the zillionaire who bought a seat in the U.S. Senate and became bored with it, and then bought the New Jersey Governorâ€™s job. Now that heâ€™s spent a bunch of everyoneâ€™s money, he has become bored with the Governorâ€™s job. Obviously he has his sights set on a gig with the hoped-for Clinton-2 Administration.
Clinton has called for a 90-day moratorium on foreclosures, a five-year freeze on interest rates and a $30 billion fund to help states deal with the consequences of the subprime mortgage crisis. She has also proposed $25 billion in federal energy assistance to help low-income households deal with the record cost of home heating oil.
Of her election year â€œBread and Circusesâ€ plan, Corzine said, “It’s not just rhetorical, it’s practical.”
If, heaven forbid, this woman becomes president, I hope she appoints Jon Corzine to be the Ambassador of Bullshitonia â€“ anything to get his grubby hands out of my pockets.
